    • 3 Pages

    The Me Nobody Knows Throughout most of my life I have often confronted myself with the question of self-identity. My past is inundated with people I have been: the quiet, reserved child, the intellectual, arrogant adolescent, and recently the cool, collected young woman.

The perception others have of becomes most important and the thoughts, feelings

    Mr Nobody Film Analysis

    • 1050 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Mr. Nobody, written and directed by Jaco Van Dormael, is a philosophical, thought provoking film that continually adds layers to its story, so much that it leaves you confused and caught up in its crazy logic. It is a movie about how our lives are made up of each and every choice we make. With beautiful cinematography and artistic notions, Mr. Nobody explores the idea that from each choice we make, there is an alternate universe in which we made a different choice. Movies about chance and fate can

    Lucette's POV I woke up with this strange feeling in my stomach. An emptiness. As if I haven’t ate in months. I didn’t feel sick, though my head felt kinda groggy. It was weird.

    Nobody saw, nobody heard Just like any other day, no one was home when Allisha came back from school. The empty house gave her eerie and spooky feelings. She could never enter house in ease; passing the garden with fast pace she looked around as if someone was watching her from somewhere near. Then she opened the door, pushing it hard intentionally making loud noise so that the “Caspers” can know Allisha is back home. She hoped they quickly hid themselves so that she will not see them.

    There are some good touches in this opening portion; as where the author refers to "Louis XIV., of inflated memory," and, speaking of indifference which attended the discovery of the Mississippi, remarks, "Apparently, nobody happened to want such a river, nobody needed it, nobody was curious about it; so, for a century and a half, the Mississippi remained out of the market and undisturbed. When De Soto found it, he was not hunting for a river, and had no present occasion for one; consequently he

    for Western genre films, but manipulated in such a way as to create a revisionist, rather than a classical, western. The most obvious example of this manipulation are the characterizations of the hero, William Blake, and his Native American partner, Nobody. Blake is an awkward easterner who travels westward unaware of the different rules governing western life, instead of the rugged, knowledgeable outdoorsman who “does what he has to do” to defend justice and honor. Nobody’s character is unusually independent

Someone commits a heinous crime, and anything but the criminal gets blamed. It was a harsh childhood, abusive parents, violent movies and video games, the availability of guns and bomb making materials, the Internet, pornography, peer pressure, etc. In my mind, if you commit a crime, then you are a criminal.
